Rangers optioned OF Carlos Peguero to Triple-A Round Rock.

Peguero slashed .350/.435/.500 over 46 plate appearances this spring. In regular season play, his numbers have never come close to approaching these, as he's a career .196/.245/.379 hitter. He has enough power (30 home runs in Triple-A last season) that the Rangers will likely give him his share of chances to prove that he's more than a Quadruple-A player.

Rangers signed OF Carlos Peguero to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Peguero was released by the Royals last month and owns a lousy .196/.245/.379 over 229 plate appearances in the majors. However, he blasted 30 homers in Triple-A and should be useful outfield depth to have around. He turns 28 next month.

Peter Gammons of GammonsDaily.com reports that "lots of teams" are in on Carlos Peguero.

Peguero, who will turn 28 next month, was released by the Royals last month and is a career .196/.245/.379 over 229 big league plate appearances. However, he's consistently hit for power in the minors, blasting 30 homers in 2014 at Triple-A. He'd likely only require a minor league deal, though he's also reportedly received interest from Japanese clubs.
Jan 9 - 12:39 PM

Royals released OF Carlos Peguero.

FOX Sports 1's CJ Nitkowski reported last month that Peguero was receiving interest from Japanese clubs, so perhaps he's close to an overseas deal. The 27-year-old has hit just .196/.245/.379 over 229 big league plate appearances.

Jeffrey Flanagan of FOX Sports Kansas City reports that the Royals have had internal discussions about committing to Carlos Peguero in a timeshare role in right field and at designated hitter.

The Royals are courting Torii Hunter, and it sounds like if they land him they could split his duty between right field and DH with Peguero. FOX Sports 1's CJ Nitkowski reported Tuesday that Peguero was receiving interest from Japanese clubs, but it sounds like he may have an opportunity in the states.

FOX Sports 1's CJ Nitkowski reports that Carlos Peguero is receiving interest from a team in Japan's Central League.

Peguero hasn't had trouble putting up big home run totals in the minors, most recently slugging 30 bombs at Triple-A for the Royals this past season. He hasn't been given much of a chance in the majors, though, and will turn 28 in February. It might be time for him to give it a shot overseas.

Royals purchased the contract of OF Carlos Peguero from Triple-A Omaha.

Peguero will function as a utility outfielder for the Royals down the stretch. He is not fantasy-relevant.
Mon, Sep 1, 2014 02:02:00 PM

Royals sent OF Carlos Peguero outright to Triple-A Omaha.

Peguero had been designated for assignment, but he's cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. The Royals picked him up from the Mariners in January in exchange for cash.

Carlos Peguero blasted a solo home run on Sunday, helping to lead the Royals to a 9-6 victory over the Padres in Cactus League play.

The 27-year-old outfielder finished the day 2-for-3. He's had a very nice spring, slashing .348/.483/.522 through 29 plate appearances, but is still a longshot to crack the Royals Opening Day roster.
Sun, Mar 16, 2014 11:18:00 PM

Royals acquired OF Carlos Peguero from the Mariners for cash considerations.

Peguero was designated for assignment by the Mariners earlier this month. The 26-year-old outfielder has shown some power potential in the minors, but he owns a .195/.242/.380 batting line over 219 plate appearances in the majors. He'll go into spring training out of options.
Wed, Jan 29, 2014 01:41:00 PM

Mariners designated OF Carlos Peguero for assignment.

The move clears room for the newly-signed John Buck on the 40-man roster. Peguero, who turns 27 next month, owns a .195/.242/.380 batting line over 219 plate appearances in the majors and regressed in Triple-A last year.
